Installation and Getting Started Guide
Click on the Copy or Modify button next to a row of port information to display a configuration panel for that port.
Select Modify to change parameters for a port.
Select Copy to apply a port's parameter settings to another port.
Here is an example of the Port configuration panel.
NOTE: A slot option appears on the chassis port configuration sheet. Slot corresponds to a module slot number.
See "Slot and Port Numbers" on page 8-8.
NOTE: The IEEE Tagging option appears only on the Port configuration sheet when tagging is enabled at the
system level and a VLAN is defined on the system.
NOTE: The port speed option 1 Gbps is displayed only when a 1000BaseSX, 1000BaseLX, or 1000BaseT
Gigabit port or module is resident on the device. Additionally, only the full-duplex mode is visible. When a 10/
100BaseTX Ethernet port or module is being configured, the options are 10/100 Auto, 10 Mbps, and 100 Mbps.
Assigning a Port Name
A port name can be assigned to help identify interfaces on the network. You can assign a port name to physical
ports, virtual interfaces, and loopback interfaces.
USING THE CLI
To assign a name to a port:
HP9300(config)# interface e 2/8
HP9300(config-if-2/8)# port-name Marsha Marketeer
Syntax: port-name <text>
The <text> parameter is an alphanumeric string. The name can be up to 255 characters long. The name can
contain blanks. You do not need to use quotation marks around the string, even when it contains blanks.
